I say I'm back, and then I immediately drop back off the face of the site again for two weeks. Go me. Anyway ... -I'm working as an intern at my mom's workplace now, since I couldn't find a job within a certain time constraint. Aside from the not-getting-paid thing, its not too bad. -Birthday went well. Not much else to say there. -I've been playing tons of Skyrim lately, but I might get back into Borderlands 2 and Halo 4 eventually. Said Skyrim playing has actually given me and Jayson (aka
And I'm still Premier, for some odd reason. I haven't paid for Premier-dom for quite a while -- certainly not during the last few months, when I only looked at BZP to check the front page -- so if someone could explain this to me, that'd be nice. Anyway ... I'm back. For now. We'll see how long it takes before I vanish again.
As promised. =) This is Andy; he's the older of the pair at 2 1/2 years old. He's polydactyl, so he has an extra toe on both of his front paws (not that you could tell here -- sorry). He's also really funny when it comes to catnip. This is Pebbles; she's seven months old. Andy keeps following her around when he sees her, though she's not sure what to think of him right now. Despite the fact she's closer to kittenhood, Andy's a bit more rambunctious than she is -- but she makes up for
Yep, it's been a year. Considering that nay-sayers kept claiming we'd last two months maximum, I'd say we've proven them dead wrong. =P On to two years! EDIT: And hey, have another early valentine's day picture, made by Jayson.
Mayans: the world's oldest trolls? ... jokes aside, I highly doubt that tomorrow will be anything other than the average Friday, not the apocolypse or the 'dawn of a new age' as the New-Age people are calling it. Since whatever's supposed to happen is supposed to happen around 5 AM, I'll probably sleep right through it. So, if I don't wake up from earthquakes tomorrow, or I'm unable to move things with my mind (as the New-Ageists are saying I will be), I'm going to have a nice time laughing
So, after a session with a Dell tech helper (in which he remotely accessed my laptop -- any Mass Effect 2 jokes will result in the joker being shot), apparently my hard drive is the root of the problem. While he managed to do a temporary fix, I need a new drive. One option was to send my laptop to the Dell depot to get it fixed, but it'd take over two weeks. The other was to pay a fee and get a tech to reinstall. Normally I'd go for the free option, but since it'd be cutting it close to when
This isn't how I expected my break to start off. My laptop, for the uninformed, seems to have the personality of an aggravating hypochondriac with a weak immune system. I got it last year for Christmas, and in that time has caused me three headaches -- the first was caused less than a week afterwards, when it started freaking out about viruses that didn't exist; the second was when it completely failed and needed a system reboot back in March. This time, it keeps blue screening when I try to
... it's really weird to be home and not seeing my Bear around; I keep expecting her to hop on my bed and steal my water, or sit on my lap. =( ... anyway, I'll be on XBL this weekend, if anyone's interested. Can't play Halo 4, though, because I'm broke and my brother hasn't bought it. >_>
My parents brought Teddy to the vet this morning to see if they good give her some saline water to help with her dehydration problems. My cat gets very stressed out when she's brought places in a car, and she doesn't like the vet's office very much because there are other animals there. That's probably why, when they got there, her condition deteriorated to the point they needed to put her on a respirator to help her breathe. After considering the options, we decided she was too weak to try an
I just wish it was under happier circumstances. ;_; My 18-year-old cat is very sick: she has fluid in her lungs, and its making her breathing very labored. She's on three different medications, but she's very dehydrated and has lost a lot of weight. She can barely stand or walk, let alone climb onto the couch or my bed. We're hoping that she can recover, or at least start recovering, by the time I go back to Western on Sunday, but at her age, it's difficult to say.
So after four-ish years of knowing of it and doing nothing, I finally succumbed to RvB. And all it took was the seven minutes of awesomeness, provided by Tex (aka my new favorite action girl) in S8, E10. What's next for me to start watching? ... (no spoilers okay guys I have seasons to catch up on)
I've been here for well over a week now, and aside from a heavy bout of homesickness on Sunday, I've been doing alright. My roommate's fairly quiet, but friendly enough. (She plays Minecraft, so props for her.) We're in a suite-style room, but unfortunately it doesn't make the room very big, since we have to share a bathroom with the other two girls on the bathroom's other side. They're alright, but they don't talk to us very much, save when it comes to things like the bathroom itself and who'
My only real complaint is the fact Zed doesn't sell health packs anymore. Aside from that, this is probably the best sequel I've played. I'm only a level 17 Siren right now, and I've got a lot of awesome guns I'm not trading out for anything. Though I do wish Claptrap was less obnoxious this go-around. -.- In other news, I move into my college dorm on the 23rd, and my stack of textbooks is immense. Note to self: check in on what's required reading before you sign up to the course labeled '
Unfortunately, I doubt I'll be able to come this year, mostly because Western's fall quarter starts about a week beforehand. Unless I wind up joining a Lego club that decides to go en masse, the chances are slim. Next year is a bit more probable, though.
I've been doing more in the last month than moping over the fact Ak's not here anymore, getting my soul stolen by Skyrim (and other entities), and ranting at RPGs. I've been doing what I'm supposed to do. Ya'know, writing. And I finally have something to show for this. Ladies and gentlemen, for your consideration -- Chapter 14 of Wings
(Something of a rant ahead, with personal, recent references. You've been warned.) I think it's not a secret that I enjoy(ed) RPGs here -- I have an entire quote block here immortalizing quotations in various games I've been in, for crying out loud. My problem now, though, is that times are changing and I'm not changing with them, for good or for bad. Anyone else remember the days that when you joined an RPG, you were always given a chance to counter another player's post with your own, as
Ak left this morning .... :C Aside for a few mishaps last night, though, his visit was excellent. ^^ 8/1: Picked him up at SeaTac, went out to The Rock for dinner with my family, including my grandparents. 8/2: Took a walk around town; embarked on a Lord of the Rings marathon afterwards. Fell asleep around 11 PM. 8/3: Hung out with one of my friends for most of the day; watched Mythbusters for the rest of it. Dozed off on the couch around 11; had to be roused so we could head to our respect
If you hear about any spontanous, Mythbusters-esque detonations down at Sea-Tac airport, that would simply be the universe's reaction to two Toa Seneca that are in a relationship together being in the same place. That said, I'm off until the 11th of August. Seeya guys later!
In 13 days, I'll be going more or less offline for about a week and three days. I'll only be on long enough to check PMs, maybe write an IC or two in Alignment, and possibly post a chapter of Wings, assuming I get it done. Why? Well, a certain Canadian that I'm in an LD-relationship with is coming down to Washington for a visit. And then after he goes home, I have college orientation. So yeah. With that said, if you hear reports of spontanious explosions at Sea-Tac airport, or Swert's
Well, considering that I'm heading to college in a few months, I figure that I might as well give the stuff that I made and don't use new homes. I'm keeping my bronze Kirop and Decepticon belt buckle, since they're coming with me to Western, but four pieces that I've made are up for grabs. I'll post this pictures and brief descriptions here; if there's enough interest, I'll move it a Seller's topic. I don't have prices in mind just yet; I'm mostly testing the waters.
